The Dalmore

The Dalmore Distillery was founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson in Alness, north of Inverness. They place a lot of importance on the casks used to mature the spirit, which are hand selected by Master Distiller, Richard Paterson - who has been with the distillery for over 50 years. The personal curation of casks alongside a heritage of expertise through generations of distillers help to create a world-renowned whisky. The roots of the brand date back to 1263 when Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, saved King Alexander III from a charging stag. As a reward for saving the King’s life, the Mackenzie Clan were granted permission by the Scottish King to use the 12-pointed Royal stag emblem on their coat of arms. In 1867, when descendants of the Clan became owners of The Dalmore distillery, the Royal Stag became the icon of the brand and adorns each bottle to this day. The Dalmore's expressions are known for rich and spicy flavours of christmas cake, chocolate orange, almond and toffee.
